Sometimes we make things more complicated than they really are.

Sometimes we make things much more harder and more complicated than they really are. That’s right. Sometime we are so focus on the negative that we forget the positive. Sure, it’s vital to think things through especially life altering decisions but not to the point we spend all our time thinking and seeing the worst that can happen and gets nothing done.

Sometimes we focus on all the wrong things. For instance, I see people saying all the time. “I’m going to publish my book.” But I am waiting two, going on three years for it be completed. I know better than the general public it takes a lot of hard work and time to produce a book. But I sense procrastination as the main reason the public haven’t seen it.

The author is perhaps wondering “Suppose no one like it?”

You like it. That’s enough. You like it or you wouldn’t have written it. YOU counts as someone liking it. Your own self-validation is the most important one you will ever get. If you don’t validate yourself don’t expect anyone to.  No one else can validate you. You must validate yourself.

Authors don’t always like their work especially if it’s something someone else wanted them to write or a genre they aren’t primary interested in.

Focus on what you can do, right now, where you are. Let the future handle itself. This is not to say do not plan for the future. But don’t let the fear of what others will say or do stop you from doing anything you want.

Maybe you can’t write like Shakespeare. But who cares? Write like YOU. Because  If rumors are correct Shakespeare shouldn’t write like Shakespeare either. Amelia Bassano wrote it. This practice was not uncommon during that time. Women had no place at all in the literary and art world. Women didn’t even play the female roles in plays. Men did. So when the actor who played Romeo did the famous kiss of Juliet. He was kissing another man.

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
